Wife: Seattle bomb plot suspect is proud AmericanBy MANUEL VALDES - Associated Press,MIKE BAKER - Associated Press | AP – Sat, Jun 25, 2011
In particular, Abdul-Latif singles out U.S.-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. The United States has put the radical Muslim leader, now in Yemen, on a kill-or-capture list, something that irked Abdul-Latif about President Barack Obama.
"He's made war against Islam," Abdul-Latif said. "He's even put a hit out on Anwar Al-Awlaki, our brother sheikh — may Allah protect him."
Here's his lawyer gearing up for the trial:
Abdul-Latif reported having "a lot of abandonment" growing up, the report said. He was raised by his mother until he was 12, when he moved in with his father, who was absent for long periods of time "and neglected to provide enough food and other essentials."
Are we going to now have to guarantee happy childhoods AND entitlements to everyone just to make sure they don't wig out on us?
How do we find and combat Muslims, or anyone else, with these intentions and where are the Muslims who don't approve of this behavior and march in the thousands against it? Wouldn't that be a comfort? But, then, there's always the one who'll blow things up. It's not dissimilar to the situation with Israel and Palestine; Palestinians are allowed to live there and peace settles in and then, out of the clear blue sky, a Palestinian blows up an Israeli bus of innocent Jews. CNN covers the atrocity that's been done to innocent Jews in Tel Aviv for five minutes and then covers the Israeli retribution to Palestine for twenty minutes....but I digress..............
Do you think this attack situation is going to step up in the United States now? And, if Israel can't handle it in that tiny country with their amazing intelligence agencies and a pro-Israeli government working hard against it, how will WE?
And what the HECK kind of title on this story was THAT, anyway? How about "was thought to have been a proud American?" ?? Is there a reason to mislead like that? And, do you think he's a "one off" case? Yes, we know he's "off", but......... And are we prejudiced for suggesting there might be more with similar plans who are said to be "proud Americans" by their family and friends?
